Since this reduces "it should work perfectly for my purposes, out of the box without any effort from my part", and without even specifying what those purposes are, take your pick:

1) when pigs fly.
2) when Pentecost and Easter are on the same day.
3) when Microsoft buys FB and makes it the centerpiece of Visual Studio

WinFBE Version 1.64

By the author, Paul Squires:
Includes all-in-one package to start coding immediately. Editor, compiler, help files, include files.

That is absolutely true. Unzip and you are almost there. I have no need for a 64 bit IDE so put a link to WinFBE32.exe on my Start menu and I was good to go. FB1.06 is used, BTW.

I have gone one step further and copied the WinFBE_Suite directory and then copied St_W's gcc 8.1 builds.

I changed WinFBE32.exe to WinFBE5.exe in the original directory and WinFBE.32.exe to WinFBE8.exe in the copied directory.

I removed the Start menu link to WnFBE32.exe and included links to WinFBE5.exe and WinFBE8.exe.

FB32 and FB64 are next to each other in the WinFBE_Suite so it is an easy matter to update FB1.06 using St_W's FB builds.

So, I now have the latest and greatest FB and can compile with either gcc 5.2 or gcc 8.1.

Oh, I don't want to use WinFBE.
Tough.
You wanted "but i want al nesecery things in one dir" and that is what you get with WinFBE_Suite; IDE, FB32 and FB64. We also get José Roca's WinFBX and templates so we can write some very tasty GUI's without a great deal of effort. The only thing we have to is code. <smile>

Added: "Tough"? Well, you could actually knock out a couple of poseidonFB_Suites, gcc 5.2 and gcc 8.1, if you are a poseidonFB fan but I prefer WinFBE.

Hopefully Kuan Hsu will also make a package for his Poseidon editor similar to my WinFBE Suite so then we'd also have an all-in-one solution for Linux users as well.

WinFBE is Windows only whereas Poseidon works on Windows and Linux. The easier it is to get new users up to speed and writing code with minimal installation headaches the better.

Direct link to the WinFBE 1.6.4. RAR archive - hope it helps.

I don't have Linux.

However, I do have poseidonFB using gcc 8.1 now. I just pointed poseidonFB to my WinFBE_Suite with gcc 8.1.

All I want now is another pair of compiler edit boxes so that I can switch between compilers as easily as from 32 bit to 64 bit. <smile>

I don't think so. Download 7-zip to handle rar files.

Just to be absolutely clear what has been linked here is a new IDE that comes in a package that includes the latest version of FB.
If you are just looking for the latest version of the compiler then this is not exactly it.

When you say "has all necessary things in it", what do you mean?
You mention that you already have the IDE FBIde, what else do you need?
The FB compiler download comes with everything you need to carry on working as you have with the older version.
You only need to point your IDE to the newly downloaded FBC.exe.

1.05 is still the latest release version.
Here is the direct link to the windows versions: https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbc/files/Binaries%20-%20Windows/
Create a new directory for it. It can exist along side the old version. Then point your IDE to the new compiler FBC.exe.

1.06 is also available but not officially yet.

The 32 bit download is a -gen gas backend only
The 64 bit download is a -gen gcc backend only.
For a complete 32 bit (gcc and gas choice) you should also get gcc.exe.
There is no easy way I know of to get this.
Myself, I have gcc.exe in version 1.05 which I copied and pasted from my old version 1.04.
Version 1.06 (which I don't use) is also incomplete (As far as I know)
Also I think that the gcc.exe might be itself updated recently (The gcc team).
But this will possibly only affect version 1.06.

Are you sure? I would have sworn the package which installs to "C:\Program Files (x86)" was gas and gcc. I don't remember having to include gcc which would have been a hassle with my UAC at full throtle.

It is not in the zip download.
I dare not run the .exe version here on win 10 to find out.

I have FB 32 bit in WinFBE so I don't need the "C:\Program Files (x86)" install which comes with uninstall.exe. I ripped it out, downloaded the 32 bit version from SourceForge and installed.

I stand corrected - no gcc. Blimey my memory is getting worse.

dodicat wrote:There is no easy way I know of to get this.

There is. Download WinFBE Version 1.64 and point any IDE to "..\WinFBE_Suite\FreeBASIC-1.06.0-win32\fbc.exe" - it has gcc 5.2.0. From Paul Squires 3 June 2018: "I have updated the WinFBE_Suite.rar download to include the 32-bit GCC output toolchain. You should now be able to use the -gcc compiler flag for 32-bit compiles."

The only snag is that FB 1.06 is used and not FB 1.05. It seems to me that FB 1.06 is fine.

Next door to "FreeBASIC-1.06.0-win32" is "FreeBASIC-1.06.0-win64".
